  • seems like the russians are hard at work today already… the whole 'fake news' thing is kinda boring though – you'd think they could at least get some new banter this time around.

  • Bernie Sanders 2020. Biden is a shill for the insurance companies and the banks. We need real Progressives like Sanders, Warren, Gabbard, or Yang. Biden is a paid shill for the Establishment, just smoke and mirrors and platitudes. We will never get Universal Healthcare or Free College or any Economic Rights with Biden, might as well keep Trump and I will not vote Democrat if Biden is nominated.

  • Joe has ZERO People Policies !! Sure hes a good man, there are alot of "Good Men".. We NEED a Good President.. Bernie Sanders is the ONLY One who is for the PEOPLE !! He cares about YOU and Me, NOT his Wallet.. Check his record over the years! He has NEVER Flipped on People Issues! This speaks Volumes about his direction and dedication to the PEOPLE!

  • Old no-policy nothing-will-change corporate Joe is a wet fantasy for a clueless ex-Repub centrist like Joe Scarborough.

    Looks like he's becoming growingly irritated even other moderate Dems – like colleague chris Mathews – are beginning to tiptoe away from Biden, wondering if there's anything but a suite and some Obama stories there.

  • So, he took pride in working with segregationists and apologized if it offended us. Fine. Didn't he himself also support segregation like Kamala Harris said at the debate? Has he apologized for that? It seems like Joe Biden can get away with anything at this point including shooting a man in public.

  • check out this 4 mins video and you will know who to vote https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C7_zUvOTg9U

  • I am reminded that when I was growing up women could not wear pants. I was literally driven home from the school principal because I wore a pair of cordoroys to school. Should I go back and demand that "Mr Seimens" apologize to me? When is this BS going to end. The world is always changing–for the better I hope. Guilting anyone about the past is irrelevant and blatantly an attempt to get something for nothing. It's not all Joe's fault!! We all need to change!!!!

  • Barak Obama asked Wall Street who they want for VP, they said can we have Biden?, and Obama said, YES WE CAN!

  • Al Sharpton has single handily divided the races more than every kkk member combined who ever breathed Gods Air.

  • So when do all the perverts get charged? Or are they going to get away with raping underage girls? Do you really think Trump wasn't one of them?

  • For almost a week now I keep getting the same two recommended videos: One is Biden saying he didn't see Harris coming for him with that vengeance. The other is Biden laying out what he is looking for in a running mate. Wow. Acknowledging that (A) you were not aware of what was coming and (B) looking too far ahead for running mates, as if you are already the nominee. Pfff.
    At any other time Uncle Joe would be a fine candidate. Not now. The good thing about the large field is the choice that's presented. Let us be happy about that. Suggestion: Yang2020.

  • Great, another apologizer in Chief just like Obama, who won't stand up to anyone and will just pay the world to like him. :-/

  • Biden is a major fool and dufus…his brain is truly scrambled huevos as he commented that the Russia "collusion" (which didn't in fact happen) would never have happened on HIS and the "Manchild's" watch…Oh really Joey? Then on whose watch did it in fact happen on…who occupied and polluted the WHouse in 2015? Uhhhh…let me think. It's tough for Ole Joe…he's always on auto pilot and inane things just pop out of that mouth and diminished mind.

  • Want a corporate democrat again? then you will invite a trump type again next time… Geez. Repeat the same mistake = Insanity.

  • Sniffy Joe the corporate owned candidate leads in who's Polls? Who decides who's polled, what's asked and how those polled are contacted? I don't know of anyone who has ever been Polled. Sanders received over 1 million donations in the second quarter of 2019 for an average donation of $18, this speaks volumes of who is really ahead in the "Polls". Corporate news influencing voters at the expense of most Americans. MSNBC, Joseph Goebbels contribution to society.

  • Egg psycho Joe ask Al sharp tongue how he feels about his friend Kamala Harris her great grandpa owned slaves in Jamaica that's right, I would think she owes reparations, and it's reported for like 86 slaves cough up the dough Harris

  • Sharpton sounds like a wine-o trying to school you when you walk by him laying on the sidewalk.

  • The most obvious reason to not support status-quo Joe is that the establishment corporate pundit class is so committed to forcing down our throats and apologize for him. Joe Biden is the same breed of Democrat that is against torturing children but provides no strings attached funding for it while having so little regard for their own responsibilities they can't even find it in themselves to impeach or even have an inquiry. They've had all the leverage in the world to get a deal for the dreamers, I remember Joe Scarborough pounding on his table saying so, and haven't. They are disgustingly disingenuous miserable cowards that end up with a new tax cut every few years. If you want change then stop voting for these idiots otherwise I've no sympathy for you. Bernie 2020

  • Biden's a Pelosi-Era non-starter. And I'm not a "young" voter ! The Corporate Capitalism Elites are NOT listening. Warren n Sanders are, and have for a decade been, the only clear choice to return our government to its rightful heirs, to heal the horrendous damage "Free Market" Corporate Capitalists have done around the globe to Humanity and the Earth.

  • BIDEN SIGNED OFF TO PUT BLACK FOLK IN PRISON FOR THE SAME CRIMES HIS OWN SON COMMITTED. HE COVERED FOR HIS SON AND WILL NOT GET MY VOTE. FORMER PRESIDENT OBAMA WAS AGAINST REPARATIONS – HE WAS THE BETTER CANDIDATE BUT HE WAS NOT ACTUALLY FOR BLACK FOLK. ALSO WHY DOES EVERYONE STILL SAY HE WAS THE FIRST BLACK PRESIDENT WHEN IN FACT HE WAS JUST THE FIRST ONE WHO'S COLOR COULDN'T BE DISPUTED? HE WAS NOT THE FIRST BI-RACIAL (BLACK/WHITE) PERSON TO BE PRESIDENT. THE FEW OTHERS WERE JUST ABLE TO PASS AS WHITE.

  • Bernie is leading Biden. He has much more support in small dollar donors than anyone else , tells you all you need. This is a massive effort by DNC to belittle Sanders true popularity, likabiity and electability. Joe regrets it because he was exposed. Plain and simple.

  • Biden's stance, Obama, choice to chose Biden raises another question. if Obama checked out Biden's record, then why would Obama pick him? Or whose interest was Obama working with?

  • people generally vote AGAINST their own best interests, Joe. Wrong again. This is the Joe Biden Fan-Club right?

  • "concerned about the direction this country is headed in" …. headed?

    Already there, the house is on fire. ICE stopping cars on freeways, concentration camps, stealing children … the USA is lost.

  • MSNBC: you can keep saying that Biden is in the lead if it helps you blue dogs sleep better at night… but he isn't, he never was and he never will be.

  • I like him he knows what he's doing. People have dirty minds. I seen nothing he done wrong. I'm a huge and loving person also and I'm not a perfrert. I was brought up with love ..does mean your sick. People make me sick. Dumpy paying these women against bison terri

  • God help us if these idiots get Trump elected again playing the same stupid game they did propping Hillary up in 2016

  • My brothers and sisters..A Vote For Biden Is Not A Vote For Obama.. Obama needed Biden for the white Boomer vote, no other reason

  • Trump would toss Biden's salad in a debate. Biden should be disqualified for even running as a Democrat

  • I am thinking that when Trump walks up behind the 2020  Dem Prez elect they should have peeper spray ready rather then a fist Biden would provide  lol

  • Great apology – it only took a few WEEKS. You weren't sorry then, you were angry for being questioned. I don't trust you anymore

  • And why does Harris pretend she is an African American. Everybody should feel proud about their own heritage. Definitely, Harris is an Indian American. I know the difference of feature between black and Indian background people

  • Biden should quit why he is ahead. After 3rd debate Biden will never be seen the same way ever again.

  • 🇺🇸PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP…. 2020, HOORAH
    …hey didn’t We ALL See that creep Joe Biden feeling-up several little girls at those DC meetings ??….
    wow, No One seems to Remember…. 🧐. hmmm….
    … huh ? Puppet 🤹‍♂️ sharpton ?… remember any of that ?…
    fake news 📰

  • While I agree that every Dem candidate would do a better job than Trump, how could they not, I see all of them lacking what it takes either morally, charisma, communication skills, broad appeal etc. Great that more women get into these races, but we lack strong, young, vital men to take on Trump. Beto and Pete are not it. Sanders and Biden obviously are way too old and not vicious/mean enough. Where is the next JFK ?

  • It's a complete and utter joke to say the media would have "moved on" if Biden apologized sooner. Moving on doesn't get you ratings.

  • The MSM tells you Joe Biden is leading so you believe. It doesn't matter what you think, it is the collective group think. All the Democrat candidates are horrifying to be honest. Yes my entire life my views were democrat and not republican. I voted for Trump in 2016 and will again in 2020. Of course I voted not for Obama, cause I knew in my spirit that man was pure evil.

  • Biden didn’t apologize because he was trying to show that he can work with the most conservative people in congress and get things done! Also this was back in the 70’s. He should be judged on his actions from how it would have been viewed at the time and not how we view them today! He ultimately was forced to apologize because of how people view things today and get offended too easy when no offense was intended…..

  • I think the DNC works for the Trump team. They're a train wreck in slow motion. Truly cringeworthy!

     THE $50 LESSON 
     
        I recently asked my neighbors' little girl what she wanted to be when she grows up. She said she wanted to be President some day.
        Both of her parents, liberal Democrats, were standing there, so I asked her, 'If you were President what would be the first thing you would do?'
        She replied, 'I'd give food and houses to all the homeless people.' Her parents beamed with pride.       
        'Wow…what a worthy goal.' I told her, 'But you don't have to wait until you're President to do that!
        You can come over to my house and mow the lawn, pull weeds, and sweep my yard, and I'll pay you $50. 
     
        Then I'll take you over to the grocery store where the homeless guy hangs out, and you can give him the $50 to use toward food and a new house. '

        She thought that over for a few seconds, then she looked me straight in the eye and asked,  'Why doesn't the homeless guy come over and do the work, and you can just pay him the $50?
    I said, 'Welcome to the Republican Party.' Her parents still aren't speaking to me.

  • where do you get your polls? you people are nutty!!! President Trump will win easily! Why? LOOK AT WHAT HE HAS DONE!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Oh God please make him stop. Let that poor old geezer go fishing tomorrow. Trump 2020 Landslide. But this like taking candy from a blind baby.
